Prostitute: sentenced to 10 months. Pimp: sentenced to 20 days.

Sounds about right, right? This shit sickens me. Also, if it doesn’t scream manipulation that the man is nearly 30 years her senior, she was a single mother in her mid-twenties…I don’t know what does.

She seems to have an amazing spirit though, and I hope she succeeds with what she has set out to do:

Wright said she felt relief when police raided her business on Feb. 12, 2012, because she wanted out. She said she intends to work when she’s released to help other women in similar situations.

“In my eyes I’m free. I free from this. And I have an incredible amount of strength that I knew was in me somewhere. Now that I have the strength I want to encourage others to come forward. I want them to know that there’s at least one person out there who’ll believe their story, no matter how crazy it seems,” she told the judge.

“It’s my intention to stand up for what is right. When I’m out, I’m going to pursue helping people fight through situations that are similar to mine. I’m optimistic that something good will come out of this.”
